Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The appearance of ]περιουσι [ between hiatus in CP Herm I. 32.4 is tantalizing, as there is no indication in this tiny fragment what the meaning may be. The verb περίειμι, ";survive,"; may be illustrated from P Oxy I. 37i. 26 (A.D. 49) (= Chrest. II. p. 87, Selections, p. 50) <τῶν > στα ]τήρων π ̣[ερ ]ι ̣όντων, ";the staters (forming a nurse’s wages) remaining in my possession,"; ib. II. 243.10 (A.D. 79) ὁπότε περιῆν, ";in her lifetime"; (Edd.), and P Strass I. 52.8 (A.D. 151) τὰ. . . περιεσόμενα π [άν ]τα εἰς τὸ ἴδιον.

For the subst. see P Fay 20.13 (Imperial rescript—iii/iv A.D.) οὐ διὰ περιουσίαν πλούτου, ";not owing to a superfluity of wealth,"; and P Flor III. 367.12 (iii/A.D.) where the writer complains that his correspondent is despising his friends—πλούτῳ γαυρωθεὶς (";puffed up";) [καὶ ] πολλῇ χρημάτων περιουσίᾳ. In the important letter of Claudius to the Alexandrines, P Lond 1912 (A.D. 41), the Emperor enjoins the Jews to enjoy in a city not their own .95 περιουσίας ἁπάντων ἀγαθῶν, ";an abundance of all good things"; (Bell). Cf. also Gnomon 6 (c. A.D. 150) (= BGU V. 1. p. 13) τετάντου μέρους ἧς ἔχει περιουσίας, and P Oxy XIV. 1642.25 (A.D. 289) τῶ ]ν ἐν περιουσίᾳ τυγχανόντων.

Reference should be made to Lightfoot On a Fresh Revision.3 App. I. p. 217 ff. ";On the words ἐπιούσιος, περιούσιος.";
